What The Labels On The Tutorials Below Mean
There are three types of manga tutorials on this lens, the about tutorials and the step-by-step tutorials, and Example Tutorials now, you may be asking what the difference is, so here it is:
About tutorials: Are pages crated with text and pictures on the particular subject without a step 1, step 2 basis. about tutorials have information points, tips, and examples, this way you are not focused on drawing a particular style every time, these allow you to expand out on your own more.
Now not saying there is anything wrong with Step-by-step tutorials, They are good too!
Step-by-step tutorials are tutorials on drawing particular things, and they show you how to step-by-step, being easy for some people. breaking down the lines into small actions makes it easier to follow what people are doing, and therefor more helpful.
Example Tutorials are picture tutorials with little or no text, these are already drawn and you do not see the progress but just the end, but for learning different styles, methods and designs.
There is both kinds of tutorials on this lens, feel free to check them out and let me know if this lens was helpful to you in the guest book at the bottom.
How are the ratings written?
I often scope the internet for manga tutorials, adding the ones I find most helpful here!
I rate the tutorials from 1-5, 5 being the most helpful while 1 would be the least.
Every tutorial could be helpful for a different person, so if you don't find a manga tutorial for you try another, I rate the tutorials on quality, on how easy they are to follow, and they're ability to explain what they are doing and how to do it in the tutorial.
These tutorials are gathered to help you easily practice your manga, not so you may copy or claim any of the art, not so you can trace any of the images. Tracing is WONG, period, no two ways about it.
To improve it takes years of hours of hard work, dedication and practice... this lens can help you skip the finding tutorials part of it.
